Rotary Club of Floral Park-Bellerose held its recent “Dictionary Giveaway” for third graders at both local schools, John Lewis Childs and Floral Park-Bellerose.
The Rotary Club donated 230 dictionaries to the third graders, to celebrate Rotary International’s literacy initiative. Club President Shane Parouse, along with club members Tom Reilly and John Day, presented the dictionaries at assemblies at each school.
One of the super excited students remarked that she would be the first member of her family to have her own personal dictionary.
The Rotary Club of Floral Park-Bellerose has been serving the community since 1955.
